JACKSON, MS - Today, the Mississippi Department of Health expanded the eligibility criteria for COVID-19 vaccinations to include ALL Mississippians aged 16 or older. That means that most residents of Smith County are now eligible for vaccination.
If you are 18 or older, you can be vaccinated at any of the state's drive-thru sites at no cost. Persons younger than 18 should make a drive-through site appointment by calling 877-978-6453, or visit a private healthcare provider for COVID-19 vaccination to ensure that they receive a vaccine approved for their age.
If you have had severe reactions from previous vaccines or injectable medications, please consult with your doctor or a private medical provider about vaccination, rather than visiting an MSDH drive-through site.
